For all my ROWing friends, I’ve placed a blog hop at the end of this post to make it easy for you to find and encourage a fellow ROWer.
Row80, 2012 First Quarter, Week 2
Living life in the middle of my goals produces patience and perseverance.
This week we have a charming young lady staying with us while she auditions for the San Antonio symphony. She flew in on Saturday and will leave on Wednesday. I could see this as distraction from my writing and teaching goals and it is a temptation to think this way and a challenge to avoid these thoughts, so I keep reminding myself that the reason I write, the reason I teach, is for the good it offers PEOPLE. If I ignore people in the process the paradox is stifling.
What about you? How do you handle interruptions to your writing goals? Please leave me a comment. I have so much to learn.
